IMO you are wrong, Roach has worked with a bunch of top guys for many many years. Alizio is spot on the money here. Fighters can feel when they are advancing their skills with a certain trainer. Roach wouldn't get the business he gets if he wasn't making a huge impact on the fighters game. He also wouldn't get return business from the same fighters again and again.

The guy is simply amazing, I watched a documentary/short film on him last year, the guy really knows his shit. Personally I think he hasn't quite grasped the concept of MMA striking yet, but this is probably due to stubbornness attached with traditional boxing vs MMA.
